Owings Mills, Maryland is a suburb of Baltimore with a history that dates back to the early 1700s when it was first settled by Europeans. The area was primarily agricultural until the 1800s when the introduction of the railroad brought industry and development. Over time, Owings Mills became known as a transportation hub and a center for manufacturing, including the production of steel and textiles.

Location History

The area where the new Applebee’s is being built has an interesting history. Historical images from 1957 show that the land was once farmland. In the 1980s, Interstate 795 was constructed to the north of the area, and the Owings Mills Mall opened in 1986. The mall operated for 31 years before being demolished to make way for the new Mill Station shopping center, which features a mix of retail, entertainment, and dining options.
